End Of The Line: We call it"phantom kidney stones"in my neck of the woods because it acts like a kidney stone but no kidney stones are found. In its pure form it is extremely rare & is a diagnosis of exclusion (i.e., after other things have been eliminated). I suspect it's like a lot of other "colicky"pain(e.g. gall bladder,abdominal cramps) and due to the contraction of muscles that line the urine tubes (ureters)
